M'sia to do its part to help resolve Qatar crisis

M'sia to do its part to help resolve Qatar crisis

"We are concerned about the crisis in relations among fraternal Arab countries in the Persian Gulf", the Russian diplomat said.

With efforts to mediate a way out of the crisis in full swing, Federation Internationale de Football Association has little incentive to act on a letter by six of its members - Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen and Mauritania - demanding that Qatar be deprived of its hosting rights because it is a "base of terrorism".

The Arab quartet have expelled Qatari nationals and imposed a blockade, impacting mixed-nationality families in the Gulf, students and people seeking medical treatment overseas.

France is calling to "lift the siege" and end "the efforts that have led to the interruption of relations between different members of families that have been harmed as a result", Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said at a joint press conference in Doha with his Qatari counterpart.

Qatar invited companies to bid on the project previous year, before the Saudi-led trade boycott against Qatar that began in June. Those leagues stand to lose millions of dollars in profits if the pro teams have to suspend play while their best players play for their home countries in Qatar.

Le Drian arrived in Qatar for a Gulf tour aimed at helping defuse the crisis.

While in Qatar, he secured an agreement to enhance cooperation on combatting terrorism and terror financing.

Hishammuddin, who is also Minister with Special Functions in the Prime Minister's Department, added that the visit was also significant as Malaysia enjoys good ties with Qatar and the four countries that were going through the internal crisis. Doha denies the charges.

Meanwhile, in Washington, Qatar attended an worldwide meeting on countering Islamic State group financing on Friday.
